ASA Certified Florida Sailing School

All Levels of Instruction from Landlubber to Salty Veteran
Fully Licensed Captains & Instructors

To become one of the ASA Sailing Schools, Sailing Florida Charters & Sailing School, Inc. met rigorous qualification standards which are internationally recognized. We have been selected as the ďASA 2012 Featured Sailing School. Our ASA certified courses give sailors of all experience levels an opportunity to become more competent and confident in their abilities.

We provide courses to bring the first timer to a level of competent seamanship. If you wish to move to the small elite who sail the world's oceans, our advanced sailing school can provide you with the necessary skills.

Our ASA 101-104 class series includes complimentary accommodations aboard our boats during your classes, including the day before and after. We start ASA 101: Basic Sailing class aboard a 29-34 foot boat, ASA 103: Basic Coastal Cruising class aboard a 35-39 foot boat, and ASA 104: Bareboat Chartering series on a 40-foot plus boat with generator for an overnight at anchorage.

You will be aboard the same boat each night for your accommodations. Our goal is to provide you the opportunity to try three different boat sizes and manufacturers to prepare you for charter. Our sailing fleet includes Beneteau, Catalina, Jeanneau, Hunter, Leopard, and Lagoon. After completing our class series, you will be able to step aboard any size boat with the confidence to sail away.
